Meimera Deiyi has been around since 2006..,they started out as a few friends jamming together with the riffs they would write in their bedrooms.After cementing a couple of riffs together for a couple of songs,they realised what they had.So with nothing but inspiration,their axes and a lot of hard work they began writing the first 3 songs "Volition","Reflection in Silver" and "Trinity"....even though the band had no idea as to what they would call themselves or what they would call the songs as no singer was present until 3 years later.Darren (lead guitar) managed to get Meimera Deiyi their first show at a heat in the Battle for Thornfest in October 2009 which was held at the Black Dahlia.Darren taking responsibility of the vocals which ended up being one set of lyrics used for all the songs because we were dropped yet again by a promising vocalist.Darren only had a week to write lyrics,learn to scream and do the vocals for five songs,nevertheless it was a success of a show and Meimera went through to the next round...and have been playing shows as often as permitted.
Influences range from old school thrash from the likes of Megadeth,Testament,Metallica ...to the more modern day thrashy bands like Trivium,Bullet for My Valentine,Lamb of God and Killswitch Engage.
Meimera Deiyi is a hard hitting band from Boksburg and you will have plenty of chances to head bang yourself into whiplash!! m/ m/
